    memory question

    Nils Dunsche

      Hi,

       

      I am planning to upgrade my system memory. In the "buying guide" http://forums.adobe.com/thread/433549 it is stated that

       

      "The lower the CAS latency, the better. Also look at tRAS (ROW-ACTIVE-TIME) results. These timing figures may give you better performance than spending money on higher clocked memory."

       

      So now I am not quiet shure, which of this two Memorys I should choose:

       

      1) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104169 1600 Mhz at a latency timing of 9-9-9-27 at 1.65V

       

      or 2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134929 1066 Mhz at CL 7 at 1.5 V

       

      24 GB will be around the same price.

       

      My Motherboard is a GA X58 UD3R with an i7 930 2,9 Ghz. I am not planning to overcock my system at the moment.

       

      So which Memory is the better buy for better performance?

       

      But looking ahead: if I would overclock my system, would the HyperX be better?
